Acclaimed platinum-selling producer Gryffin and singer/songwriter Olivia O’Brien have joined forces for an exciting new single titled “Caught Up,” out today. Accompanied by a lyric video “Caught Up” slowly builds before bursting into a full-fledged anthem supported by Gryffin’s dynamic production and Olivia’s magnetic vocals. The track arrives on the heels of a busy few weeks for Gryffin, having just announced on Monday that he will play Los Angeles State Historic Park on November 4th. His first live show in Los Angeles in over three years, the LA State Historic Park show will serve as the biggest stop on the Alive tour, and Gryffin’s largest headlining show to date.
A powerful showcase for Gryffin’s high-energy production, “Caught Up” builds as O’Brien offers up a play-by-play of the infatuation, infusing each line with an emotional soundscape. With its perfect pairing of low-pitched vocals, dynamic textures, and pulsating beats, the result is an undeniably euphoric track from the two talents.
“Caught Up” arrives as Gryffin moves forward with his nonstop run of live shows and festival dates. Known for his explosive and emotionally charged live set, the multi-instrumentalist will take the festival stage this summer at Bonnaroo and Life is Beautiful, in addition to continuing his successful Las Vegas residency at The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub. Later in the year, he’ll return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre to headline the legendary venue for the very first time on October 21st followed by his largest headlining show to date at Los Angeles State Historic Park on November 4th. The first live show in Los Angeles in over three years, the LA State Historic Park show will serve as the biggest stop on the Alive tour, where fans will be able to hear the entire album live with new production and new visuals.
With his sophomore album Alive due out soon, Gryffin recently teamed up with Calle Lehmann for the album’s title track, which released last week. The string of records and announcements from the platinum-selling musician arrive just after his collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-nominated band OneRepublic on “You Were Loved” — a heartfelt and shimmering anthem that premiered last month.
Born Dan Griffith, Gryffin got his start in music as a classically trained pianist and guitarist while also playing in several bands. After receiving an electrical engineering degree from the University of Southern California, he pursued a path in music production, drawing equally from his carefully honed musicality and edgy ingenuity. Gryffin made his breakthrough in 2016 with two singles showcasing his melodic take on dance music: “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts) and the Gold-certified Bipolar Sunshine collaboration “Whole Heart. In addition, his 2017 smash single and first Platinum record “Feel Good” — with Illenium and featuring Daya — peaked at #18 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. Gryffin’s major triumphs also include “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé (which hit #2 on the Spotify US Viral Chart, #9 on the Global Viral Chart, and was recently Platinum-certified), “Remember” ft. Zohara (which garnered 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks and earned support from Tiesto, who featured the track on an Instagram story), and “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a Gold-certified smash that’s now surpassed 320 million streams globally). In October 2019, Gryffin’s debut album Gravity quickly climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Now, with multiple heavyweight collaborations under his belt and a US tour underway with stops at major festivals, he’s excited to put out his sophomore album, Alive later this year as he continues to put out pop-dance anthems for the world.
22-year-old Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Olivia O’Brien has amassed over 2.3 billion global artist streams and is responsible for the viral TikTok smash and RIAA certified Gold, “Josslyn,” with over 218 million streams to date. She first made a name for herself in 2016, with “i hate u i love u,” her 2 billion-streaming RIAA 5x-platinum, self-composed debut smash collaboration with gnash, which introduced Olivia as a rising pop star to be reckoned with. She has been praised by tastemakers like NYLON, V Magazine, and Ones to Watch, as well as Cosmopolitan, Complex, Billboard, Bustle, and more. Paper magazine also named her one of "100 Women Revolutionizing Pop Music." Olivia’s viral streaming successes have contributed to her huge social media following, with over 1.5 million followers on Instagram, over 1.4 million TikTok followers and over 44 million likes on her TikTok page.
